    Default Ongoing pain after birth/epidural?

    My daughter is 10 weeks old, and I had an epidural. I feel like I've recovered really well, apart from one thing - I get weird pains down the backs my thighs, crotch, sometimes in my feet, and only sometimes. Usually if I have been sitting for a while. It hasn't been as bad lately but it's bloody annoying! My back, including the injection site, feels 100%, and I don't know if this pain is a result of the epidural, the birth itself, or something I haven't thought of. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    Default Ongoing pain after birth/epidural?

    I never had an epidural with ds but I was quite sore for a while after labour with aches in my hips and back. I found going to the chiro helped, maybe something is a little out of alignment since having bubs.

    I can't help much but from a nurse's point of view, I'd get it checked out. Sounds like a nerve issue.

    That's what I'm afraid of. Might see a Dr when my car comes back from being repaired later this week.

    Me too, but it was also bad while driving longer distances, so it seems to be a sitting thing!

    Good to know there is a possibility it might go away!
